I'm new to this community! Still going through the formal diagnostic process but been having fibro symptoms for around 1 year now. This is important as I may not have access to the prescription meds of someone formally diagnosed just yet - we'll see when I next go to my GP though!
Some background: I cooked dinner yesterday and my hands were in horrific pain during and after the process. They were shaky and sore for quite a long time afterwards.
Today I'm suffering with "restless hands". They just feel slightly numb and really uncomfortable, like I need to keep moving them just so they feel okay. It's really frustrating and making writing difficult - it seems localised to my thumb in my right hand. It's hindering my revision quite significantly and I wondered if you guys knew of anything that relieves the horrible restless feeling?
I'm sure it will resolve itself by tomorrow but I figured I'd ask to see if it were definitely a fibro issue or if perhaps it's something else entirely.
On a side note - my legs and back get awfully itchy quite often and it can sometimes keep me awake at night. I try to stay moisturised to rule out dry skin as a cause - I mean perhaps it's even due to allergies but it's just so tiring to always feel so itchy!
Has anyone else experienced this, and what has helped you alleviate the itching? I'm getting pretty fed up with this symptom in particular as I'm constantly uncomfortable.
Forgive me if it's inappropriate to post here without a full diagnosis just yet - but if anyone has gone through this and has any useful tips that'd be fantastic!
